An Inspiring Tale of Survival, Oct 7 2002
Steven Callahan's book, Adrift: Seventy-Six Days Lost at Sea is a remarkable retelling of his unimaginable ordeal on the Atlantic Ocean. Callahan retells his story in an exciting and gripping fashion. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The main point one gets out of this book is the power of the human spirit. Callahan fought against every problem and disaster with fierce determination. His determination saved his life, and truly is an inspiration to anyone who reads this novel. The novel made me consider how lucky we are to have the luxuries we have at our disposal. It's hard to fathom losing every luxury on the ocean except for your basic needs, food and water. Callahan has to deal with the torment of dying physically and mentally for seventy-six days alone. The book never gets repetitive; Callahan always captures the imagination with his different trials on the sea. It is an excellent read.
